and the kind of sentence that is administered to african americans in the united states. i think in many respects it is kind of a slam dunk of a case. there was a decision made that -- for expediency purposes that the case would be tried in virginia first. and that they would probably successfully get the death penalty. and virginia is a very kind of pro death penalty state. maryland has the death penalty, but it takes a very, very long time for somebody to be -- for for sentence to be finally taken -- taken out there. >> you were talking about the speed. that was one of the arguments made in the appeal to the supreme court. not only was this mentally incompetent person who shouldn't have been representing himself but the speed didn't have enough time to make his case before a district court, and challenging that, and new associate justice sonia sotomayor was one of those who said like you know why are we rushing, you seem to be jumping ahead of the timetable set for this. >> that was one of the problems that i had with the case, the fact that the supreme court would have ordinarily

committing crime, then we'd have to open the doors of every prison in the united states and let every one of those inmates out. secondly, we don't have kidnapping for ransom in the united states. it was mentioned by the husband in this that it sounded like a bad movie plot. well, it is a very bad movie plot. notwithstanding hollywood, these things don't happen. the last time there was a fake ransom like that was in the jonbenet case, another long, rambling note which we know was fake because the little girl was dead in her -- in the basement. now, the real concern here, though, for people in my understand is the whole idea of faking kidnappings. what that does is it creates cry wolf scenarios so that the next time something like that happens there's a cynicism on the part of the public, or very well could be a cynicism on the part of the public about whether or not -- >> i agree. >> -- that kidnapping is an actual kidnapping or not. not to mention the resources that are taken away from legitimate situations. >> back to the lawyers. eleanor odom, peter odom, tamara holder. peter odom,
